Protesters clash with police after a police officer killed a black man Sunday (11) in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The victim was identified as 20-year-old Dante Wright by relatives at the scene.
The lawsuit was probably funded by George Floyd in May last year.
During the fight, a group went so far as to fight the police action with stones.
Police fired tear gas and rubber bullets.
In a statement, Brooklyn Center police said a man was detained by police for a traffic violation just before 2 p.m., and he was found to have an excellent arrest warrant.

When police tried to pick him up, he got back into the vehicle. The report said a police officer shot and killed the driver. The driver drove several blocks before hitting another vehicle and dying at the scene.
Minnesota Governor Tim Walls said he was monitoring the situation. “We pray for Dante Wright’s family, while our government mourns another life of a black man taken by the police,” he said on Twitter.
Tensions are high in the region as the case of White Mannipolis police officer Derek Suev enters his third week of testimony. In a police approach, Sue knelt on the neck of George Floyd, who was already in handcuffs, suffocating him.
